If you do not have any byelaws, do you have any other policies relating to the use of UAVs on your land?

Can you finally advise if these have been reviewed in relation to CQP722C ( published by the Civil Aviation Authority in December 2020.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Hawkins,

We didn’t receive your original FOI request but given the title of your

information on byelaws relating to UAV flights.  The High Weald AONB Unit
is small specialised team advising on the conservation and enhancement of
the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – see here for further

We don’t own or manage any land and we don’t write or enforce or have
